After Mandana Karimi's "Kyaa Kool Hain Hum 3", audience has been treated with another adult comedy "Mastizaade" on 29 January. Starring Sunny Leone, Vir Das and Tusshar Kapoor, the film failed to impress the critics.
In the Milap Zaveri directorial, Aditya Chothia (Das) and Sunny Kele (Kapoor) play sex addicts, while Leone appears in double role of geeky Lily and raunchy Laila. The duo falls in love with the twins. Riteish Deshmukh has a special appearance in the beginning of the movie.
The film is full of Leone's skin show and Das' comedy. Zaveri's film has failed to impress with its lame comedy where homosexuals are the butt of all jokes and women are dropping clothes at mere sight of men, according to critics.
It seems the director's effort to make an adult comedy didn't turn out well. Similar to "Kyaa Kool Hain Hum 3", Leone's "Mastizaade" was also unable to garner appreciation.

Shubhra Gupta of The Indian Express said: "Having suffered through two hours of non-stop crassness, I am sorry to tell you that there are barely two-and-a-half laughs in 'Mastizaade'. The alleged 'masti' is so 'sasti', that you are left cringing rather than cracking up."
Nandini Ramnath of Scroll.in said: "The movie's general disgust with the idea of gay sex proves that for all its outrageousness, Mastizaade is as tame as they come. The jokes are weak, while Zaveri's taste for zany puns has soured. The filmmaker's ability to find sexual innuendo in everyday situations and objects is truly staggering. Here is a man who cannot look at fruit or a pole without losing his equilibrium. From peeling a banana to opening a bank account, from light sockets to soda bottles, Mastizaade pulls out all the stops and lets the ribald humour gush for 108 minutes."
Shubha Shetty-Saha of Mid-Day: "It is in this, Milap Zaveri's insufferably silly and offensive world, women (yes, each of them) can't wait to drop clothes at the mere sight of men, homosexuals are a constant butt of jokes, a handicapped man on a wheelchair is literally pointed and jeered at and there is even a suggestion of sex with a horse. So it would be fair to say that Zaveri puts in equal efforts in attempting to offend men, women and animals."
Suprateek Chatterjee of Huffington Post said: "Roughly two hours later, having bolted for the exit as soon as the "movie" ended, I was dry heaving, physically sick from having endured what felt like an even worse assault on my entire being."
Priyanka Prasad of Filmibeat said: "All in all this movie is so not worth the watch. It may have its niche audience, I just hope it is not you! Please skip this movie and watch Saala Khadoos instead, it may have its negative points but that movie is 100 times better than Mastizaade so please don't waste money watching this double Sunny Leone movie in theater, instead watch her videos online for free."
